M16 Radio Table
« on: January 02, 2021, 05:52:11 PM »
I've picked up this radio table in addition to some other parts from a nice chap down the road from me. He got them with his halftrack but never used them, he thinks the brackets in the photo mount on top of the table but I can't find any photos showing how they fit. There's also the MP48 mast base which I'll need to fix with a new piece.

Which radio would be used? I've seen the SCR-528 (Ive got a copy of the TM) and a smaller (earlier??) radio. I'd like to mount 4 Tombstones rather than the 3 with the 528 so is there another TM for an earlier radio?

That’s a link to the TM I’ve got for the SCR 528 which is the big radio where you lose some of the tombstone rack. I could do with the TM for the smaller (earlier?) radio but I don’t know which one it is.

Big radio at top and little radio at the bottom. It could of course be that they are both the SCR 528 and it’s just the larger one had the extra intercom amplifier bits for the M45F etc. But the TM dated 44 only shows the big radio. I would expect the 43 M16 to have had the smaller radio.

The last photo is from a forum members thread but I did notice the DMC in the back ground. Could a movie have made a car any more famous? I've no doubt that if it wasn't for the Back to the Future trilogy that the DMC would have been one of those cars that vanished into obscurity. I think i read that a company in the US will build a new one if you have the funds available.
